An Inflatable Landing Craft

Exhibited at Seawork International by Henshaw Inflatables  and marketed by Superyacht Tenders and Toys was a smart craft called the iLC (inflatable Landing Craft).

It pretty much does what the name implies, no explanation needed, but I thought could be a useful addition for certain operations and units.

At 5.5m long, obviously it is only for motorcycles or quads but if all that is required, it means a larger landing craft is not needed, and a larger landing crafts host ship either. Because it is compact when not in use, it can be deployed from all manner of vessels or transported by vehicles. It can also be lifted with payload onboard up to 900kg all up weight and is said to be ready for action within 15 minutes of opening its container.

Now you’ve done it Boss!

THEM will want a dozen, what with their new pot of money.
The BMW GS may also give them ideas…

Was going to post the same… but could not find any link to the boat currently used by the SF of some other countries. That you can sink under water, the outboard included, once you (and the kit) are onshore.

– one of those at the waterline = quite obvious; and too heavy to drag into the bushes

At £20,000 its a bargain and if we buy enough of them we might get a discount. One for every ship in the fleet would be a good start.
